WHO chief recalls own war child past in peace plea

GENEVA: The World Health Organization’s chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has recalled the pain of his wartime upbringing in Ethiopia as he pleaded with global leaders to unite for peace.

The WHO has called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in the war between Israel and Hamas for the safe delivery of food, medical supplies, and other aid into the Gaza Strip.

Tedros said on X, formerly Twitter, that he was making “a humble plea for ceasefire and peace.”
